Please interrupt the currently running process (STRG+C) and do it in two

a) sudo -i 
   to get a genuine root shell

b) apt upgrade

With this I want to check if there is anything funny happening with the
terminal when using just "sudo apt upgrade".

If this does not change anything, interrupt the process again and just
issue "update-initramfs -u -v -k 3.16.0-4-amd64" to see if anything
strange happens during the generation of the initramfs.


Sigmentation fault. Core dumped.
